Hip Preservation Techniques explores hip problems and presents and compares alternative protocols for treating the condition in children, adolescents, young adults, and adults. While poor long-term outcomes of arthroplasty have led to an increasing dependence on procedures to conserve the native hip, preservation surgery may maintain or protect a hip and prevent or delay the need for arthroplasty. Well-established techniques such as cartilage restoration and use of tissue-derived mesenchymal stem cells are presented, and conceptually different procedures such as Bernese peri-acetabular osteotomy, Salter’s and Pemberton’s osteotomy are also discussed. This book will be useful for medical students, residents and consultants with an interest in hip preservation surgery.
